A to Z challenge – G for Games

Personal experiences, incidents and smiles

I am not much into playing physical games. But I do like playing games on my phone. These can become addictive over time.

Back in 2013-14 I downloaded two games on my phone. One was Nemo derived from the first movie and the other was based on Ice age. I got so addicted to these that I had to start my day with doing the daily tasks that the games called for. I even spend money to buy the virtual stuff in these games, a lot of money. My kids used to make fun of my addiction to these games. Luckily for me that as I changed my phone they weren’t compatible with my new phone. This served to break my addiction and I had to stop cold Turkey.

Now I just play cards games on my phone. I can say that they are mildly addictive but I don’t feel that I have to play them if I don’t have time.

My elder brother, who is a doctor told me a long time back to keep my mind actively engaged by doing puzzles and playing games that make me think. It’s one way of preventing pre-senile dementia. So I do it for medical reasons, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!

Are you a gamer? What sort of games you like to play?

  1. I don’t like games of any kind. When I want to do something mindless, I organize my files and customize my phone…🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸

  3. I play phone games daily: solo Scrabble, solitaire (multiple forms), and another word game. I’m starting to enjoy them more than physical games because no one loses. I do play physical games with friends and sometimes Code Names over zoom. I also play other games with my kids in person…

  4. I have several games on my Kindle. Most are word games and card games, which I do every day. But there is a silly bubble pop game that is addictive. It is pretty mindless, and I waste a lot of time on it. Every day I tell myself to delete it. Maybe tomorrow will be the day.🤨
